China Glaze Sky High Top

In the Summer 2009, China Glaze actually released 2 collections in summer. The first one was Summer Days. This one had the colors of Strawberry Fields, Watermelon Rind, Grape Juice, and etc. They were amazing glass fleck and non traditional summer colors. They also released a collection later called the Kicks collection that had a bunch of summer bright shades. The Kicks collection was completely overshadowed by the Summer Days collection. I think rightfully so, Summer Days was far more interesting and unique as a summer collection.

That being said, three and half years later I've found myself seeking out some of those Kicks collection colors. Why? I've seen a few of them that are part of the China Glaze core line at Ulta. My eyes have always grazed passed the few that are there, and I made a mental note that I'd like some of them in the future. Many thanks to my friend Mandy of MandysSecrets who gave me Sky High Top one of the colors I had my eye on for the holidays!

Sky High Top




Sky High Top is medium bright blue with a subtle blue shimmer throughout.

This is a gorgeous bright blue polish, and the shimmer is a nice touch. The shimmer isn't in your face, but it's just enough to give the polish that extra special umph. The formula on this was really nice too, and easy to work with. The great thing about this polish is it's easy to find!

Happy Friday!

P.S. Thanks for listening to my polish history lesson.

  10. Love this. This makes me think of the OPI Nikki Minaj color called Fly. I think I have this CG polish somewhere in my stash. This collection was released before my polish addiction, but I do have a few of those you mentioned from it, Strawberry Fields was one of the first CG polishes I ever bought. This is soo pretty!
